I was photograping the Mesquite Dunes but the first 2 days the dunes were covered in footprints. Then one afternoon while I was riding my motorcycle far up in the Paniment Range I saw a dark cloud closing in on me and I raced back to camp but about half way there I was caught in the storm the wind blew so hard that I had to lay down on the gas tank to keep from being blown off the road!. As I was nearing camp a bolt of lightning flashed across the sky! It blew hard most of the night but the next morning was bright and clear, the dunes were pristine.
